Yes! If you're doing that kind of volume you better eat as much as you can stuff down your pie hole!

Here is one: http://www.testmyhormones.com/adrenal_function_background.htm but there are lots. You just have to take some saliva swabs and send it back in the post.

Ok, I've seen this question floating around an haven't answered it because it was too vague but now I see that you're doing sealfit. Unless you're planning on being a special operator, then sealfit is way too much volume. The only reason to beat yourself down with sealfit and the like is for you to become crazy efficient at those exercises and that volume so that you can survive the selection (BUD/S). Even the navy knows that the selection protocols they use aren't good for the recruits. There's a big difference between training to become a warrior and beating someone down to see if they have the physical and metal toughness to be a warrior. There's nothing good for your body that happens during selection, you just have to be tough enough to get through it. Then the real training and building up starts.

Sealfit and other workouts like that are to prepare you for selection. You need to become super efficient at running and swimming and you need to know how to go to your happy place and do work for hours on end. But it is not in anyway good for a normal person.

I have a friend who's preparing to be a special operator and he does the sealfit stuff. He's way tougher (mentally) than me and can do work all day, however, I'm still way healthier than he his. My goal (because I'm too old) is not to become a special operator, so I don't beat my self down like that.

So it all comes down to your goals. Do you want to be a special operator? Fine, do stuff like sealfit. Do you want to be an all around bad ass (civilian), don't ruin your body with that kind of volume. Do some short heavy metcons and call it a day.

Get a cortisol test and see? It doesn't sound like it's having a negative impact on your health. If you feel OK, then why worry about it?
